Frequently Asked Questions about the Calendar
Where can I find the WAR schedule?
You can view the entire WAR calendar at the following URL: https://potrerowar.org/calendar.php
How can I subscribe?
There are several ways to subscribe to the calendar. The WAR calendar is available in a standard ICS file format. This format can be used with programs like Microsoft Outlook, Apple's iCal, Google calendar or just about anything that supports the ICS file format.
I use Outlook. How do I subscribe?
Open Outlook and click on File Select the Account Settings box and then click the Account settings option. Choose the Internet Calendars tab and click on New. In the dialog box, enter the following link: http://potrerowar.org/Potrero-War.ics and then click Ok.
I use an Apple Mac. How do I subscribe?
Open the Calendar application. Select File->New Calendar Subscription
Enter the following link: http://potrerowar.org/Potrero-War.ics and click Subscribe.
We suggest you do not store this calendar on iCloud, but choose the location of "On My Mac". iCloud sync for subscribed calendars does not work properly and you may end up with out of date information on your iDeveices.
I use an iPad/iPhone/iPod. How do I subscribe?
Open Settings, then select Mail, Contacts, Calendars. In the Accounts section, select Add Account. Select the account type of Other and then Add Subscribed Calendar.
Add the link http://potrerowar.org/Potrero-War.ics and click Next. Give the calendar a Description like "War" and click Done.
I don't use these new-fangled computers but I do use Google for my calendar. How can I subscribe?
Login to your google calendar account. On the left hand side of the screen, select the drop down for "Other calendars" and select Add by URL. Enter the following link: http://potrerowar.org/Potrero-War.ics.
Please note that you cannot control the rate of refresh for Google calendars. It may take a while before the calendar data is populated into your calendar.
I would prefer to see an RSS Feed. Do you support that?
Yes, each of the calendars have their own RSS feed. You can scroll down to the bottom of the calendar pages and click on the RSS link.
I am subscribed to the calendar, but I am not seeing updates
When you click on the ICS link for the calendar, most browsers will try to open them with your calendar program and import them into your calendar. This is a point-in-time copy of the calendar and not really a subscription. Your calendar program will need to add the ICS link as a subscription.
Can I just add a single event?
Yes, if you go to the full calendar link and click on any event you will see a "download event" button. This will allow you to add just a single event. Note, that this will be a copy of the event and not a subscription. Changes to the event may not be reflected later.
Wow! There sure are a lot of events on the calendar! How do I filter on event type?
When you use the WAR calendar there are categories on the right-hand side. If you only want to see some of the categories, you can select the appropriate categories and then select Go. The calendar will refresh and show you the subset of events.
How do I see all the events for a single date?
The date at the top of each column can be clicked. Once clicked the view will switch to the Day view.
Hey! How come I don't see any events yet?
There are two reasons why you may not be seeing events.
- We just have not put them in the calendar yet. Please be patient as the event stewards will have the information online as soon as possible.
- Check your dates. Make sure you are on the correct days for the calendar. It's easy to get lost while clicking around and end up in the wrong month or year.
When I hover over an event, I am not seeing the full description.
The code currently does not display the full description. To see the full description, you will need to click on the event so that it opens in another window.
